I went to demo restaurant last week with my girlfriends. The restaurant was really busy which created a great atmosphere. We did the 6 course menu with wines, because we thought two deserts would have been too much for us. The chef Tommi presented our first dish which was a fantastic touch and was great to meet the face behind... More

This was not my first time at Demo, the oldest restaurant in Helsinki still holding its Michelin star for a decade now. For such a high quality experience it's affordable and will always take your breath away. So there was an event for a winemakers dinner and I really had to go to see how my favourite restaurant can handle... More

Great experience. Service was excellent, really professional and friendly staff. Special thing was that they cut the lamb at the table, it was something I've never experienced before. I highly recommend this restaurant!

I came here for dinner with my wife after a friends recommendation. Firstly the service was fantastic. You know its good service when things seem to effortlessly appear and disappear on your table without you particularly noticing yet at the same time we felt completely looked after and our waitress was very friendly. The restaurant manager was great at making... More

What can I say? Easily the best restaurant we visited in Helsinki. Fantastic food, brilliant service (we don't speak any Finish and the staff were very accommodating) and a lovely friendly atmosphere. The great location also meant it was the perfect ending to a day wandering around and visiting Helsinki. Not to be missed.

One of those fine dining places where they have set menus of N dishes (they had 4 to 7) and no a la carte. I tend to be somewhat suspicious of the set menus, but here the food was absolutely great.

I was excited about dining at Demo. It was a chance to go to a restaurant where you don't know what you will be having. The concept here is that you choose from 4, 5,6,7 course menu that the chef surprises you with. Because of what I can eat I was able to only get the 5 course tasting menu.... More

Demo has been around for years, and for some reason never made it to test it. Until yesterday. Just passes by and got a table. We had 6 of the 7 course surprise menue. Only the fish was fine dining standard. From the 6 wines only one was a match to the food. I was really dissapointed.

Relaxed place. Hospitable. Great "clean" food. Ecellent cuissons. Elegant flavors. Wines picked with care. Pricing is correct.

Thank Marc V
